You should really upgrade to a newer CPU instead of spending so much on a high end motherboard.
This. You could improve your system much more with the same budget if you upgraded elsewhere.

What is your budget exactly? And do you overclock?

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103649

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131368

Pretty much destroys your current rig in gaming.

Ha you recommended my motherboard for him :D :D..


But if he doesnt really overclock, maybe he should be good with a 780G. And then he can save up some more money for a new cpu later

sorry to change off topic, but my motherboard's memory standard says DDR2 1333 OC.....does that mean i have to overclock it in my BIOS for it to work????

Yes toxicity, you have to overclock your FSB/Reference Clock to get it to 1333mhz (effective)

Your bios will not let you set it manually
